Sugar Snap Peas with Mint

The Red Wagon Farm Crew picking your CSA snap peas this morning.

Snap peas and mint are one of my favorite flavor combinations. The snap pea season is very short. I try to make this super simple dish at least two or three times while the snap peas are on. This dish is a great example of the flavors being more than a sum of their parts. The mint melts onto the garlic scapes and lightens their flavor and brings out the sweetness of the snap peas.

snap peas and mint

2 teaspoons olive oil
3/4 pound sugar snap peas, trimmed
2 tablespoons of garlic scapes or green onion
pinch of salt and pepper
2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar snap peas, garlic scapes or green onion. Season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry for 4 minutes try to get a little bit of a sear on the peas, then remove from heat and stir in the mint leaves.
